Note - "THE U.S. KEPI - IS NOT A CIVIL WAR KEPI" In the 1980s bad collectors would remove tags from early Indian War Kepi's and then try and pass them off as Civil War kepi's. Average Original Civil War US Kepi 's are worth around $5,000.00, Original Indian Wars US Kepi 's average worth around $800.00. Confederate Kepi's even more up in the $15,000.00 average. This is a 1870s U.S. Army Kepi.
This all original American Indian War grouping is a fantastic looking display. The grouping would be a great add to any nice collection or museum.
